Though this movie is based on an Australian TV series, The Box stands successfully on its own. In the movie, Channel-12 owner Sir Henry Usher (Fred Betts) has engaged the services of Dr. Winter (Cornelia Francis), an efficiency expert, in the forlorn hope of having the station turn a profit. When Dr. Winter arrives on the scene, she is confronted with the station's efforts to produce a hopelessly awful adventure drama, "Manhunt." Efforts on the part of station personnel to placate, appease and please this implacable (so they imagine) authority continually go awry. Inveterate schemers, the station's personnel manage to have as many romantic misadventures as they have job-related ones. Eventually, they get a clue, and things begin to look rosier for this madcap bunch.
